International Relations

How can the Careers and Employability Centre help me?

We offer one-to-one advice and a dedicated jobs database, as well as a wide range of events, programmes, workshops and presentations to help you explore your options, build your experience and make connections. Here is a sample of what we offer:

Get advice

You can get one-to-one advice throughout the year (and up to 3 years after graduation). We offer a range of bookable and drop-in appointments during the day, as well as Wedneday evenings during term-time. We also offer study skills tutorials to help you make the most of your course.

Careers Fair

Our annual Careers Fair, in association with the University of Brighton, attracts over 100 employers and 3000 visitors. Speak directly to organisations offering placement and graduate opportunities. There are also opportunities for overseas volunteering and further study/training.

Make it Happen

Make it Happen is two weeks of events in the spring term, featuring presentations and workshops designed to prepare you for your next step, whateverr that may be. It includes a series of 'Careers in' events covering areas such as Development, Charities & Not-for-Profit, Government & Public Services, Business & Finance and more. These feature a range of speakers for each, mainly Sussex graduates.

Events

There is a full programme of events throughout the year, from careers adviser workshops to employers presentations and skills sessions. Helen Gorman, our adviser for Global Studies, does an introductory session for 1st year Geography students, along with a more in-depth careers exploration and personal development programme in the 2nd year. There is also the Global Studies Does Careers in January.

Jobs Database

Our jobs database advertises thousands of opportunities every year. From part-time and vacation jobs to 1 year placements, summer internships and graduate schemes there is something for everyone.
